It’s hard to believe that Galentine’s Day didn’t exist until a couple of years ago, when it was coined by Parks & Recreation’s Leslie Knope as a way to get together with female friends and recognize your importance in each other’s lives. Like Festivus before it, Galentine’s Day now transcends television and is practically a national recognized holiday (or at least it should be).

And it’s a total gem of a day. To quote Leslie herself, “it’s like the Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas.” Celebrated on February 13th, it’s a complete and utter lovefest between you and your besties — kickin’ it, breakfast-style— that’s earned its rightful place alongside Valentine’s Day (February 14), Mother’s Day (May 8), National Dentist’s Day (March 6), National Girl Scout Leader’s Day (April 22), and National Mutt Day (December 2).
